A striking fusion of form and function, the Kasokudo Bonsai Planter by designer Adrian Magu is as stylish as it gets. The product is an artistic representation of the developer’s interest for everything green and his work in the automotive industry: “Referencing speed forms and manufacturing processes used in transportation design, this piece juxtaposes movement applied to what is usually a static object.” The unconventional shape and elegant black-gray silhouette makes this unconventional bonsai planter fit perfectly in modern interiors with a twist.
Other unique features of the product are highlighted by designer Adrian Magu: “The piece gives the impression of an accelerating form that effortlessly floats to house a bonsai tree, evoking a perfect balance of dynamic harmony. The latest manufacturing processes of the highly polished finishes of the planter and 3D-printed ‘mountains’ contrast to that of nature that usually takes many decades to grow, sculpt and form the gnarled bonsai forms. In all, a unique synthesis of cutting-edge precision with the imperfect beauty of nature.” Find this planter design as captivating as we do? [Photography by Andy Beard]
